There is much to see, create, and discover in the world of Terraria, so the aim of this recurring piece is to focus on a small part of it and see what you all have come up with.

This week's theme is Traps: What kinds of tricky ways can you stop monsters and other players from reaching your valuables or your hideout?

We recommend going to the full images linked above each, as traps are a bit difficult to portray in such a small space. Most users featured in this week's Compendium have their own threads or posts with several images and explanations. Luckily, there are many video entries this week as well!

Today we have a very talented animator who had recently made a trailer on YouTube called Terrarian Parody Trailers: Immortals. This is was TriangularSatellite first animated film and it looks like he was born with some amazing talents.

So we're proud to present Immortals Trailer:

Want to create your own PvP map? How about an adventure map? There are some fundamental decisions you need to make in order to get started, and this guide should help you answer those questions. Before you even decide what kind of map you want to create you must ask yourself, "What am I going to use to create my map?"

Of course you could always just build something in the game itself, with no mods. It would take an insurmountable amount of time, but it can be done. For most of you though, your going to want to use a world editor to build it. Currently there are two mods that focus mainly on editing worlds, Buildaria and TEdit.

Buildaria uses your Terraria client, so you are still building in-game. The biggest advantage you get from building in-game is that you can test it out as you build it. TEdit on the other hand, is a separate program that can create and load worlds. You build like you would draw in Microsoft Paint. TEdit does have the feature of using Terraria's sprites to show you what it would look like in-game, but it's not implemented perfectly. TEdit is going to be faster at building large structures or terraform the land how you like it. Buildaria on the other hand, works well for refining an almost completed area to look just as you imagined.

I'm not going to go too in-depth about those two world editing mods, but you can read all about TEdit in the mod feature I did about it here, or you can read all about...

By popular request, we have here today an epic remake of the Skyrim trailer, done in Terraria by community member zebri. For the best experience, go fullscreen!​


Production facts, from zebri

-The raw footage shot for the making of the movie has a total size of 23,9 Gb.
-I had to uninstall 2 games from my PC in order to get enough disk space to store the files
mentioned above.
-3 guides died during the making of the fight scenes: 2 accidentally, 1 intentionally.
-The twins had to be summoned a total of 7 times to get enough footage of the fights
-Spazmatism died only in 3 of 7 fights.
-I had to remove a guide from the map since he moved into a house that appears in a scene.
-I used a hallowed repeater to kill retinazer and to get spazmatism to his second form; the
amount of cursed flames used to craft the all the cursed arrows i used in the 7 fights had a sell
price of over 22 gold.
